Belgium and the ‘latex brat’!

24 Nov

I completed NaNoWriMo!!! I decided to edit two books I’d already written rather than take on yet another book in a month with two tours in it, but I completed the 50,000 words of editing today and am chilling in bed with tea, diamante and lace (making something for a shoot) and 90s films.

See? Did it.

I arrived back from Belgium about 24 hours before the places I had just been visiting were put on lockdown. I’m sending all my love and best wishes to my friends back over there. Stay safe. <3

I was pleased to see a lovely display of openness, generosity and solidarity from Milton Keynes Muslims when I went to town at the weekend. A giant banner with #NotInMyName and people standing ready to chat about life, the universe and everything, even though it was freezing! When I was at school, I remember religious discussions were often led by people we knew (for example our Muslim computer technician who was a familiar face around school and someone we could ask as many questions as we wanted. This was before Islamophobia became rife as far as I know, as this memory is from when I was about eight years old!)
It was nice to share snacks, photos and life stories with open-minded friendly people before my bus arrived.

Here are a couple of my travelling pictures from this Belgium trip!

The view from my shooting apartment in Brussels- the sunset made the buildings opposite look like opals!

I was staying with fellow model Riona Noire, her husband and menagerie of animals (with varying degrees of snuggliness). :D
If you do not know Riona then you should click the link above and look at her, as she is awesome, beautiful and has some top secret projects going on that she can’t talk about. The suspense is killing me! :P

While I was in Antwerp, I shot for KinkyStyle again- yay! Photographer Patrick is always a lot of fun to work with- we rarely plan outfits in advance so both turn up with cases of latex to choose from and bounce ideas around. I really like getting the chance to play different characters and last time we worked together he brought a latex hoodie, a pink top with “BITCH” across it and some fingerless gloves. As I rarely do ‘cute’, I had to try the outfit on…
And it fit! :D

So let me present… THE LATEX BRAT!

Pigtails and heels are serious business…

Bitch? Moi? …

… don’t make me laugh!

So what have you bought me?bitchiebrat_17

No diamonds? In Antwerp???

Get out of my sight!

:P :P :P

I’m thinking about carrying a few packs of stick-on fake nails to any non-nude shoot- I’d have loved some really pointy pink ones with little bows on them for this set!

This time, we managed five different looks! As I make a lot of my own clothing I wanted to show my own style a little more, so wore a black latex bodysuit with New Rock boots, my holster bag from Jungle Tribe and my homemade Winter coat. No full length pictures yet, so have some selfies!

As it’s past midnight here in England and I’m surrounded by glittery things, I’m going to put the kettle on and sign off! There’s a beautiful rainstorm tonight and I can hear it pounding on the roof. :)

Goodnight all,


p.s. Are you doing a longterm project that feels like an uphill battle? Spare a thought for this guy! He’d been trying for 6 YEARS to photograph a diving kingfisher… and he finally got it!
I’ve very jealous as there is a kingfisher at the marina and I watched him catch a fish the other day. I have a soft spot for them as I think they’re the closest thing to hummingbirds we have in England- weeny jewel coloured things that squeak. <3

Beauty in Shadow

14 Apr

I’m back from a lovely sunny few days in Somerset with Anita De Bauch and am now sitting down to catch up on my emails and organise my next tours, which will be Berlin, Ireland, Manchester and Norfolk.

First though, I’d really appreciate your support with a couple of things I’m doing. Pay attention at the back there! :P
1) I’m in a competition to win a custom-made latex catsuit!! (As you may guess, this is something I would love to have.)
All you need to do is click the link here and click ‘vote’. That’s all. No signing up to anything.

2) I’m in the running for the award of “Fetish Model of the Year”! If you could please follow the link here and vote me as highly as you think I deserve, that would rock as well! It’s a little less user-friendly- you need to cycle through the pictures, which are displayed at random, but the plus point is that you get to see more beautiful ladies.

There you go! Any help would be appreciated.

So, as the days are getting ever-so-light now, I struggle with conflicting wants and wishes! On one hand, I love the clouded days in which I write with a mocha nearby. On the other hand, I sit on my roof and watch the world go by on sunny days. It’s only then that I can truly get to know the creatures and life around me- and on that note, Mr Toots the kingfisher is back! Apparently he returns on bright days so I’m staking out the bank.

Somerset rolled with the hills, caves and gorges we lack in Milton Keynes and apart from seeing one of my best friends “in her natural habitat”, it was a relief to finally shoot outdoors again without fear that I’d freeze to death! So many lambs everywhere, lovely food, kind people- and we found a slow worm in the garden. Look at her little face!
Anita christened her ‘Fern’ and I added ‘The Turbo Snake’- in case she has a complex about being a slow worm. (They are neither slow nor worms- they’re legless lizards.) ;)

I also saw pipistrelle bats flittering around at dusk! I couldn’t capture them on my slow phone, but it’s lovely to see them again after what has felt like a long winter. They’re the smallest found in Europe and a friend of mine used to call me a pipistrelle when I was a thirteen year old Goth…  a teeny tiny little bat. Ha ha ha!

Another thing I’m noticing more and more is that the sunsets are drawing out and are even more orange. Despite the Spring frolicking I’m doing at the moment, I can’t help but think it would be perfect for a Film Noir shoot or two in London, or maybe a Milton Keynes underpass. (Just a quick snap taken outside Wagamama…)
I love the moodiness and atmosphere of Film Noir shoots! I shot these back in January with David Morley, in Saracen House studio.

A lot of you have been asking about the petition results from my blog “Between My Legs”. Sadly, petitions about Jeremy Clarkson were more popular and now that the general election is upon us, politicians have better things to do- like bitch and moan at each other on National television… I’ll blog properly about the wider issue when I have a little more time, but I promise this is not forgotten.

So, for now I am going to enjoy the light and practise not feeling guilty for being out in the sun. We humans do need our sunlight hours, after all. And when the shadows lengthen, I’ll write my little socks off (when I’m not stretching, that is. I can get my foot under my chin now!)
These were taken by Simon P Shaw last year, in Blackbarn studio and perfectly capture the peaceful kind of darkness.


I’ll leave you with some lessons learned in one of my favourite childrens’ books. A sticker for guessing which! ;)
Dark is: exciting, kind, fun, necessary, fascinating, wonderful, beautiful.

Until sunrise, people!


p.s. I just got a message from another of my best friends- the olive-skinned gypsy nude model Madame Bink. I’d like to share her blogpost with you- please have a read and see if you can make her smile today.

It has been a manic couple of weeks but most of it has been positive, uplifting and very happy! I’ve learned to light a fire in my cosy wood-burning stove so am snuggled up in my lounge with to-die-for gingerbread latte cooling on my tree-stump coffee table, and dinner roasting in the oven (butternut squash with basil butter).
It’s hard to know where to start…

I’m featuring in Kirameki Magazine this month, with an interview and an article! It’s the Girl Power issue and will focus on strong women, feminism (read my article before dismissing it as a dirty word- I promise I’m not a man-hater!) :D I just read that as ‘man-eater’, I’m not a man eater either. :P There will also be some photos I’ve been sitting on for ages- if you’re a leather or Mad Max/post-apocalyptic clothing fan, you need to see this!
Here’s a behind-the-scenes I took during the shoot:

I was honoured to do an interview for Radio Vienna last month, covering my life and work so far- as well as opinions on model safety, fetishism and other bits and pieces too. If you want to hear my very, very English accent (the interview is in English), follow the link and start listening at the 22:00 mark.
It was my first radio interview (other than a very brief publicity chat I did for an event in 2008!) so was nervous to say the least!

Though voting is now over for Miss Fetish Europe and the event is this weekend, I have just been told I’m also nominated for the award of “Fetish Model of the Year 2015”! If you would like to send a vote my way, follow this link and scroll through the ladies until you get to me, then give me any number you feel I’m worth! Preferably a 10… :P

I have some new sets on Zivity, with the very lovely Andrew Shiels (and help/lookout duty from Georgia!) I have a teaser here with Yummy Gummy latex but head on over to my Zivity page for all the sets. If you aren’t a member, that’s no problem- you can unlock sets for about $3!
Andrew had also commissioned a surprise for Georgia- I’d secretly been drawing one of their gorgeous horses and sneaked it in my suitcase. It has been delivered now so I can show you! Here she is! I’m setting up a mini-site for my drawing work but if you would like to see more or commission a portrait of your own, get in touch ASAP as I can still send things out before Christmas.

I’m off to Dominatrix this weekend, have a month full of latex shoots, possibly my first shoot on my boat(!) and so many articles on my list, so I decided to do something else too. Now I can confirm I’m not only bats, but a total masochist as well, as I am doing NaNoWriMo this year again. For those not in the know, it’s National Novel Writing Month and participants pledge to write 50,000 words in 30 days.
Look: it’s official!
I’m using the month to give my crime thriller “The Ferryman” a kick up the ass! I actually published an extract on a friend’s blog a long time ago. Though I’m already itching to edit it, you can have a read by clicking HERE! The book will be about some post-mortem examiners playing a very sick game, and one will be a woman not motivated by revenge or money (a rare thing in any genre). That’s all I’m saying for now.

I hate going without blogging for so long, as news just piles up and I couldn’t not mention Shoshana B Roberts’s video of street harassment in New York. It makes my blood boil and it’s a whole other blogpost but I hope more women do this (video the abuse). One of the biggest problems I find when talking about this issue is men having no idea why it is so threatening and frustrating. (And it is hard to explain. Constant looks and comments about how attractive you are sounds great… until you hear the tone of voice for yourself. Until you see the leers with your own eyes.) This video helps explain. While I personally answer the ‘have a nice day’ types with ‘thankyou, you too’ unless they are said in that creepy leery way, the kissy noises and long stares, not to mention the guy walking beside her are utterly unforgivable. You know what? I’m getting shaky and angry already so I’m going to save it for a day or so, so that I can compose a proper blog about it rather than a segment of this catch-up. Certainly, I encountered so much this summer that I kept a diary of the comments and stares with the intention of publishing it online. I’m glad this issue is finally getting the attention it deserves.

I’m back from Belgium, where I met some lovely fellow models, ate a lot of Belgian chocolate and shot in some beautiful places. I even tell a funny story about the trip during my radio interview so do have a listen… ;)
Here are just some of the places I’ve been:

as it’s been a busy varied month, I’ll show you some busy varied pictures from my studio evening with Gunther Frans:

Back to the murder and mayhem! ;)


To you, good news.

23 Sep

Hello everyone!

I recently have had some really very lovely messages and presents from fans so wanted to say thankyou. To the active followers (those of you I know in the comments), and the lurkers too (I get over 10,000 views a month- I know you’re out there!) Thankyou.

This is a job in which you must always be active- even if you’re having an ‘off’ day, people need to remember who you are and it really is lovely to know that even during those times you guys check in and keep reading. This is not a down time- I’m a very happy lady right now and it’s time to share my good news.

In 9 months time, I will be giving birth…


That’s right- the story I told you about in my entry “Urban Decay” is one of only four novellas that have been accepted for publication in an anthology of steampunk stories! Isn’t that awesome!?
I will of course keep you updated on here and if you’d like to keep track of my writing news, subscribe by clicking the button in the right hand column.

I also have some modelling news- I’ve been nominated for “Europe’s Best Up and Coming Fetish Model” Award! It has made me so happy to even be nominated, and I have decided that if I reach the Top 10 list, I will give away TEN FREE PRINTS to celebrate! :D
For me to get into the Top Ten, I need your help- you need to vote for me.

1) Go to this link and click “Vote for Roswell Ivory” http://dominatrix.nl/models/model/621
2) Confirm the vote in your e-mail inbox.
3) SHARE the link anywhere and everywhere and spread the good word.

Some of those nominated have a gazillion fans- I have a slight disadvantage here! But if you all vote and share along with me, I have a fighting chance and I like fighting chances. ;)

Remember, fetish is not just about latex fashion (that’s what I’m writing about at the moment) and to recap some of my many adventures in fetish modelling, have a lovely selection of pictures…

Guys, seriously- thankyou for all your support. Long may you continue rocking my socks.


Adventures after dark…

10 Jun

Hello and greetings from my hostel in Utrecht!

Sinical Magazine are running a poll of the top 20 Alt models! If you think I should be on there, drop them a message through this link. :)

So a few weeks ago I lurked around the London Docklands, with a suspicious suitcase, waiting for photographer Krukis to meet me for some camera-related mischief in aid of the soon-to-be-launched Nocturnal Girls magazine, in which I have a column. As we didn’t really want to be arrested in the first five minutes of shooting, our schedule was planned like a military operation- as these things often are. Armed with a blanket, my big kicking boots and the car I dubbed “the murderwagon”*, we set off into central London.
*I know nothing about cars, but quite a bit about serial killers and their car of choice for quite some time was the Volkswagen Beetle. This is not a beetle, but it is a shiny black Volkswagen that was being driven around with a naked woman in it so I claim artistic license here. ;)

I have never yet got into trouble when posing nude outdoors- I have had a few gawkers stop in their tracks and I swear every dog and owner for miles around turn up when I shoot in the countryside, but things have never got nasty (Hope I don’t jinx things now!) so I’m no longer nervous when working in public. The street we visited first was quiet (unsurprisingly for 11pm on a Sunday night, but we did see a pair of very nosy foxes who had a stare and then continued on their way) until we turned up. Then the world arrived, slowed down to the speed of a snail on tranquilisers and gawked for a bit. My theory is that the more you scramble for blankets, the worse you look, and what’s the point? They know I’m naked, I know I’m naked and by acting as though I’m ashamed, people automatically assume I’m at best doing porn and at worst doing something illegal. I continue posing in the most artistic way possible, holding poses for three shots or more until the spectators realise there’s nothing to see and move on.

So here we are: we named the stone skulls William and Harry.

And off we went to Covent Garden, for some fun around the corner. :P
While posing, lit by the old-fashioned light on the wall, I couldn’t help but wonder if the alley I was in was a haunt of the old Victorian prostitutes, and made up a character for myself. Anonymous, naked and both hidden yet in plain sight if one knows where to look…

It’s something I know I do a lot, as do many models. Making up a storyline or a character to represent helps keep us inspired and thinking of new poses to experiment with. Of course we have our favourite poses- we know what is likely to be most flattering to our faces and figures, but in pretending to be someone else it helps break us out of that box.

When we changed setup and I got to play with the car, I made up another story- this time involving a woman who lures unsuspecting people toward the mysterious black car with an unseen driver, which spirits them away. A modern-day siren of sorts…

e (44 of 69)


We didn’t realise that this inconspicuous little tunnel was actually a fairly well-used passageway until the third person muttered “sorry” (how English!) and continued on their way as I tried not to explode laughing.

e (57 of 69)

We did go to the centre of Covent Garden but as we were rumbled before the tripod touched the ground, we took this lovely shot and made a speedy getaway to our last destination…
A postmodern masterpiece, no? Notice Big Brother in the top right corner…
e (66 of 69)

As we approached the location we both burst out laughing (partly due to terrible murder jokes and partly because this was going to be simultaneously terrifying and hilarious) . Rain was gently coming down in a mist, the bridge was slippery, the tripod was cumbersome, and I guessed we had about ten seconds before we were acknowledged (it takes a few seconds to stare and then a few more to start screeching about moral decency). ;)
We pulled over.
I sprinted across the bridge.
I dropped my blanket.
I posed.
We ran.
Much, much giggling ensued. I generally hear nothing when working, except photographers’ instructions- and so I apparently didn’t see or hear the drunk man lurching across the bridge who muttered “oh, a naked woman…” and continued on his merry way. Bless his drunken soul.

e (68 of 69)

So there you go. I flashed parliament.

It all got a bit Benny Hill afterward as I tried to get dressed by Kings Cross station and forgot all about the night bus that came by at the precise moment I shouted that I’d lost my knickers, and the other night bus that came as I stood naked from the waist down, waving a pair of shiny stiletto shoes around.
My phone then rang just as I’d spread my wardrobe over the pavement looking for the elusive knickers so spectators were treated to the sentence “I’m safe- the photographer isn’t an axe murderer and I got naked in front of Big Ben”.

Hiding in the sanctuary that is Starbucks, I wound down from the four crazy hours that will be repeated in August in latex, fingers crossed! ;)

I’m currently on my annual Eurotour now and have even remembered to bring my phone cable! Backstage pictures: they are coming.


p.s. If you still haven’t voted for me in the Deep Down and Kinky Awards, it really would make my day/week/month if you could please! It takes all of ten seconds to fill in my name in the model’s section. Thankyou so much!
